February Athlete of the Month

Come on winter!

Time for you to go.

Can't help it but without having snow to play in I really do not like the cold... I can deal with it when the sun is out and I can be teased that wearing my sun glasses somehow makes me feel warmer inside...

However, now that we know that we will have 6 additional weeks of winter I just have to accept the harsh reality and continue to sip my hot chocolate to achieve that coveted warmth inside...

Now, I can also reach that same warmth inside by reading blood clot survivor stories.  It is hard and uplifting at the same time to read about the surprise/shock, struggle, and eventual recovery that blood clot survivors can make after a clotting incident.

Of course every story is different and unique to each individual.

Our bodies will dictate the actual pace of the recovery and there is nothing we can do about that other being patient.  From my experience talking to blood clot survivors with many diverse backgrounds the "being patient" component is the most difficult to master as you listen to your body...

How do you explain to a teenage athlete to be patient...?

Well, personally I don't have the answer but I know someone who share her story about her clotting incident with so you can find out from the source how to overcome the "being patient" component of the survival equation...

Please read on for JENNY's STORY...

I hope that you are able to get the same "warmth inside" as I did by reading this personal account.

No doubt that Jenny will not be going through the worst time of her life again and she will overcome this hurdle of the second knee surgery without any complications.  Their past experience gives her and her medical team the arsenal of knowledge they need to be successful.

Here is wishing Jenny the BEST OF LUCK on her recovery.  Looking forward to hear what else she will be able to accomplish!

Thank you for reading,
